What does organic really mean? How does food really go from farm to table?
City girl Dorothee Royal teamed up with photographer Mark Andrew Boyer to answer those questions and document their adventure as they "explore America's sustainable food landscape." They're traveling the U.S. visiting organic farms, community gardens, and restaurants to learn about where our food really comes from.
Dorothee explains the idea behind the project really well in the OrganicNation trailer:
They've been documenting their experiences with blog posts, photos, and video: talking with farmers, restaurant and cafe owners, and experts about aspects of sustainable food. This video about organic seeds is a great example:
One of my favorite parts of this project is the interactive map that they're building. It's meant to be "a visual directory of America's sustainable food landscape," and anyone who wants to can submit a location! They're mapping out "organic farms, community gardens, restaurants, cafes or other sustainable locations." If the submission form isn't working, you can also send locations to Dorothee at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
